Hay guys this is kind of old news because I actually got them last thursday, but they are finally here, and man do they kick arse, and they make the burner feel even more nimble. I guess people are right when they say a good set of wheels make the bike. I am sorry, but I did not export the pics from the camera yet, but I will have them up later tonight. Just hang in there. Lol.

I also forgot to mention because of the king engangement I was able to get over this very thick log I was unable to get over before, and I also like the freehub noise it makes.

After riding on my kings for the last few weeks, I have noticed the engagemant improvement as well, especially in the rough steep sections...
Mudpie - the blue contrasts nicely with the red GA clay!!

Tight Freehubs on CKs

Hmm. I actually feel like the jury is still out on mine. The front I love. The rear is still not broken in. In addtion to the bee buzz, which I have mixed feelings about, the freehub is just still really draggy. Now admittedly I didn't start riding them 'til late August, and the season here - for sane people - ends in November and is only just barely starting again now. So truthfully they don't have huge miles on them yet. I know they're supposed to take a long time to break in, but I guess I just didn't expect them to be THIS stiff for THIS long.

I have some early 2002 Kings with about 4k nasty miles on them and they are starting to settle in nicely.
Seriously?

Wow. I have a set and impressed with them, but definitely done under 4K miles. Look like I can look foreword to even better performance.
